ARK: Survival Evolved Full Edition Release Date Announced; Season Pass & Collector’s Edition Content Detailed

Studio Wildcard’s massively successful title, ARK: Survival Evolved, has been in Early Access for a long time now, to the extent that it seems finished more than actual games on the market.

Studio Wildcard finally revealed an official release date for the game’s final edition, as well as the game’s Explorer and Limited Collector’s edition content. Here is all the details:

ARK: Survival Evolved ($59.99 USD)

This base game includes everything a burgeoning Jurassic adventurer needs to get started in the world of ARK. It’s the core game, and all free content released up to this point, offering up hundreds of hours of gameplay to players.

ARK: Survival Evolved Explorer’s Edition ($99.99 USD)

The Explorer’s Edition takes the base game, and adds even MORE – introducing a Season Pass that will grant access to all expansion packs, starting with Scorched Earth (available now) and including more packs launching later this year and into 2018.

ARK: Survival Evolved Limited Collector’s Edition ($159.99 USD)

Only at GameStop and EB Games Canada will ARK fans be able to pre-order the ARK: Survival Evolved Limited Collector’s Edition for $159.99 USD/$219.99 CAN. The ultimate ARK fan’s dream, the limited Collector’s Edition is a collectible faux-wooden chest box that contains the ARK Explorer’s Edition (base game + Season Pass) along with…

  • A handcrafted leather-bound Explorer’s Notebook, featuring the Dossiers of every in-game creature
  • An official ARK necklace
  • A cloth map of the ARK island
  • A poster of the Studio Wildcard development team
  • The official ARK: Survival Evolved soundtrack, recorded live by the Philharmonia Orchestra
